Meet Dustin Long

Dustin has been employed at Liburdi Turbine Services in Mooresville, NC, since September of 2007.  He began work there as a bench tech right out of his service in the Navy.  Dustin put himself through school at Mitchell Community College, attending full time, while maintaining full time employment at Liburdi. He earned an associate of applied sciences in Mechanical Engineering Technology.

Dustin is also Interim Vice President of Operations for “The Fathers’ Rights Movement”, a national non-profit dedicated to promoting Shared Parenting legislation, Education on the disruptions caused by the $50 Billion a year divorce industry,  and Family Court reform initiatives.  They also operate a suicide prevention hotline for at-risk members of our movement. 

Prior to joining Liburdi Turbine Services, Dustin was enlisted in the US Navy, serving from October of 2000 til June of 2007 as an Aviation Maintenance Mechanic, serving with VQ-4 at NAS Patuxent River Maryland, AIMD at NAS Sigonella Sicily, and at VFA-86 in Beaufort SC. 

Dustin is a father to 5 amazing boys, 2 from his first marriage, aged 14 and 11, an awesome soon to be step-son, aged 6, and 2 beautiful young boys with his wife Kimberly, ages 4, and 18 months, and has a daughter due in February 2018.  In fact it was his divorce from his first wife that led him into becoming involved in politics.  After going from a full time father to being relegated to a “Disneyland dad” by the court system, he began diligently working to ensure that his children don’t inherit the same destructive system that he and his family suffered through. 

Long was born in Fort Scott Kansas on July 3, 1982, and grew up in Texas from the age of 1 til he turned 14, when his family returned to Kansas.  In 1997, he moved to Rocky Mount North Carolina. When his mother decided to return to Kansas in 1998, he chose to stay behind so he could finish school.  He graduated from Northern Nash Sr. High in Rocky Mount in 2000, and as stated above, joined the Navy afterwords.

He has been a resident of Stony Point since he separated from the Navy in 2007.
